Manchester City re-asserted their dominance on the English Premier League on Sunday, comfortably beating Arsenal 3-1 at the Etihad in one of Sunday’s big clashes.
Pep Guardiola’s side were in lethal form across the 90 minutes and never looked like losing the game. Kevin De Bruyne, Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus were all on the scoresheet, with Arsenal only mustering an Alexandre Lacazette goal in reply.
It was another match to forget for Gunners fans, which is becoming an all too familiar an occurrence this season.
Having finished the weekend in sixth position, the pressure is really on Arsene Wenger to turn around results and string together the kind of form that makes them guarantees for a top four position.
Supporters were of course bitterly disappointed with the lacklustre performance, with most of their criticism saved for midfield Granit Xhaka, who didn’t have any positive effect on the game whatsoever.
Fans took to Twitter after the match to share their thoughts…

Wengers selection cost us today lets leave a 52m pound striker on the bench 🤔 . Xhaka still can't pass, Ramsey's got glue on his boots.#afc
